That's not true, I don't have postgrad, I'm over 100. It's not easy to find in Canada but it's out there. My classmates in the US all pull in around what I do, one significantly more. Just need to be at the right place at the right time, and then do a good job.

EDIT: PhDs also guarantee absolutely nothing. You have to be ambitious to do something with it. A lot of companies will actually snub you because they figure your salary expectations will be well beyond what they're prepared to pay.

EDIT 2: Does anyone else feel like this thread is equivalent to that post on Craigslist - the broad asking where to go to bag the guys making 200+?

Yeah I saw your car this morning.... nice snows... lol. Still badass.
Not like we have any baller cars here... the guy with the 7 just got laid off...

I'm getting so sick of driving here too.... Markham is quickly getting on my nerves, and this weather isn't bringing out the best of Markham drivers....

Currently in 3rd year Commerce at U of T... Looking to getting into Investment Banking or something along those lines. Got some decent connections in the industry and hopefully within 3 years of graduating will be in the 6 figures.

or "i have a Ph.D in human biology, been doing it for 10 years, studied at harvard medical school, i want to keep my income private but i make more then 100,000"

*mainly want to know how you guys got your E60's and E90's lolol

Your mentality towards life and values in general are pretty tweaked. With the way you currently think, you will never be happy.

Stop numbers hunting, and do what you like. The rest will fall into place.

EDIT: Sorry that's the wrong one... I couldn't double check cause my work internet filter considers the site "Adult/Sexually explicit" but I just checked the google cache... Here's the real one:

The thing is. a lot of e60 and e90 owners are not on this board... Many people (myself included) think that the real BMW's died with the e39, and maybe the e46's. Besides, e36's are worthless by now and e39s-e46's are considered cheap. Shit I bet in a few more months e46 m3's gonna get into the 20s

Not true...
people always say that.. do what you like... im so sure urologists love doing what they do...

id love to be a message therapist (in all honesty) but would any one be happy brining in sub 30,000??? noo...
do an experiment if you think money doesnt buy you happiness.

go down to jane+Finch and walk south along jane intill you get depressed.
then go to yorkville and see if you get depressed..

so what else do you do besides moderator on maxbimmer.>

Wrong!

Started school in 1984 for System Analyst could not get a job.
Worked at Procor as a welder making over $27,000 in 1985
1986 Worked as a roofer making over $35,000 per season
1987 Started work in my field making over $30,000
By 1994 I was making over $120,000

In 1998 opened a retail store selling computers and still maintaining my client base for system analyst making over $5,000 Yup the store was sucking me dry.

By 1999 my salary increased to $6,000, things were looking better
2000 over $150,00
2001 over $275,000
2002 over $300,000
2003 over $375,000
2004 I was bringing in $500,000
2005 over $250,000
2006 over $75,000 nothing new in our industry sales were going down hill.
2007 $0 had to pay employees and bills.
2008 Started trucking company My salary for next 2 to 3 years will remain at $0 All the money that the business makes goes back into the business.

These days you can make millions without university or college degree, however I do recommend that you stay in school.
Your income will depend on how hard you work and your drive to succeed. My average hours spent working for my store between 1998 and 2002 was in excess of 80 hours per week and I loved it. I started work around 3:00am and finished around 11:00pm
I would never go in a field by how much money you make. Always try to do what you love even if it pays less.
My current job I work sometimes 60 hours straight without sleep. I love what I do and I don't consider it as work at all. I have set a goal, however my wife thinks that I'm crazy.

the man speaks truth. Do wat u like, life is too short. but maybe wat u like is money and thats y u want to have some crazy job. and if u like something enough, u will ALWAYS make money in it, doesnt matter wat it is, u just have to like it and work hard at it. U like chooping down trees? i can gaurentee u can make a fortune off of that.
